Forum: GratefulDead Subject: "Magic is what we do. Music is how we do it."

Anybody know the source for this quote? I've seen it attributed to Jerry and to Mickey but can't find it in print anywhere. Have you seen it lately?

Thanks,

- Michael

Sounds like Mickey Hart, who also said one time "The Grateful Dead are in the transportation business and music is our vehicle", or words to that effect.

The Lovin' Spoonful said :
"The magic's in the music and the music's in me, yeah.
Do you believe in magic?"

Sorry Soggy, I can't let you get away with an Aly & AJ version of a great great song! You might not remember the Lovin' Spoonful inspired the Grateful Dead to cover this next Spoonful song a few times. "On The Road Again"

I've seen it attributed to both also. I sort of hear Mickey saying it over Garcia.

Google it in quotes. Turns up a bunch, but I didn't find it attributed to a specific interview. Almost like an urban myth.
